California State Parks Appeal
Filed under: general
Posted by: The Cyclofiend @ 12:21 pm

Ok, I get it.  There’s no money in the state these days. But, closing 200 or so of the California State Parks?  Really?  That’s the best you could come up with?  How about suspending the pay of the state legistlature? 

oooooh this gets me grumpy!

From the California State Parks Foundation website -
“Just this week, the Governor announced a new proposal to eliminate
state funding for our state park system – which will close more than
80% of the 279-unit state park system.  His proposal to cut $143
million from our state parks is 10 times worse than last year’s
proposal. CSPF is kicking off the Save Our State Parks campaign again,
and we need your help to take action TODAY and tell the Governor and
your state legislators that gutting funding to state parks is
unacceptable.

Next Tuesday, June 2, the Legislature’s Budget
Conference Committee will consider this proposal.  State park advocates
need to make their voices heard RIGHT NOW.  Your contact to your
legislators is critical. 

Last year CSPF members sent over 55,000 citizen
petitions to Sacramento and stopped him from closing 48 parks. We can
make a difference…again.”

As you’d guess, there’s a petition -
